Acne and dry skin

Credits also go to: Lactic Acid Peel. There is a false myth running that only oily-skinned people are likely to develop acne. Well, things are actually different!
There are other criteria that influence the appearance of acne and the skin type is not one of them; yet it is true that it affects fewer people with dry skin on the average. Bacteria, hormonal changes, an unhealthy diet and a chaotic lifestyle could make the right premises for a dry acne skin outburst. Should you come to suffer from it, the first important thing is to identify the causes and use a targeted therapy to get rid of the acne lesions. Yet, a double approach is required most of the time: one for the skin dryness and another to eliminate acne.
Good moisturizing is the key to treating dry acne skin, because you thus protect the natural skin barrier against all sorts of factors. The skincare products normally used should contain soothing and healing agents like aloe vera, for example, that moisturizes and promotes tissue regeneration at the same time.
In case you no one single product is available for both aspects of the condition, there are plenty of home remedies that could prove useful. Let's take the case of callendula: this herb has a powerful antibacterial impact, eliminating the acne flareups as well as tissue healing and soothing properties to prevent and treat excessive dryness.
Oral medicines are often prescribed to treat dry acne skin, although in the majority of cases the treatment is topical. Depending on the ointment, you could extend the topical use to larger skin portions besides the face for instance.
In case you have acne extended on other parts of the body, clothing and hygiene rules are just as important as proper tissue hydration. If you choose well, clothes could be a comfort, but if the wrong materials are used, dry acne skin could aggravate; therefore, cotton should be preferred over any other synthetic fabric.
In summertime dry acne skin tends to get worse. A better air humidity works in favor of the skin dryness on the one hand, and on the other, it creates the right environment for an acne skin outburst. Therefore, it is highly indicated that you maintain some form of balance in the treatment of dry acne skin. Use cleansers that are alcohol free and find products that clean and disinfect without drying the tissues.
